Hello Crystal, Mr Henry Schildhauer would have been my father's first cousin once removed. His father Joachim was my great grandmother's brother. My great grandmother, Anna Schildhauer, came to New Holstein in 1867 with her husband, Heinrich Hass and their first three children. Thank you for your posting, please be in touch. I have done genealogy on these folks for a few years now and visited their home (Owschlag) last year. Donna
